Walter Russell Mead joins host Marshall Kosloff to review what an American “arsenal of democracy” really means and what it would take to build one for the twenty-first century. Walter and Marshall also survey the shifting world order, from the war in Ukraine to the China challenge, to identify what American leadership can do against increasingly influential great power rivals.
Walter Russell Mead is the Ravenel B. Curry III distinguished fellow in strategy and statesmanship at Hudson Institute, the James Clarke Chace professor of foreign affairs and humanities at Bard College, and the “Global View” columnist at the Wall Street Journal. He co-hosts the weekly Tablet news podcast “What Really Matters.”
